sweet bliss

Hello from New Hampshire! I am HOME ALL WEEK!!! Lovelovelovelovelove. Yes, I am home at my parents house right now. I arrived Saturday about noon and will be here until next Sunday. It's been fantastic so far and I hope the rest of the week passes very slowly.

Steve is actually coming up tomorrow. One of my high school friends is getting married on Saturday, so he'll be here for that. I have NO idea what I am wearing. I brought home four dresses. Ha!

I had a riding lesson with my mum yesterday! I used to ride- actually, I rode for more then 10 years, starting when I was about 8 and up halfway through my junior year of college when my friend and I got into a minor car accident and the doctor told me not to ride for a few months, and then I was heading off to Luxembourg that January and just never did again. So anyway, my mother has been taking lessons for the last few months and is loving it, so I had a lesson yesterday with her! It was so much fun, I loved every second of it (except when my right foot went numb bc it wasn't used to muy stiff riding boots!) and now I want to find a barn in DC to take lessons at!

Today? Lunch with my grandmother and mother and then seeing my godson. Tomorrow? Get Steve at airport, then no idea! Thursday? Story hour at the library with best friend and godson! Lunch at my favorite place ever. Other then that, and the wedding of course? No huge plans. Steve and I thought of driving to Canada for the day, but the logistics were tricky, so I think we will save that for another trip.

Did you watch The Batchelorette last night? My mum and I watched together- she's obsessed with the show! I was so pleased with Deanna's decision- I loved J, he was my favorite from the beginning!

What else is new with you?

I'm so glad Deanna ended up with Jesse, too! He actually seems like a real person, unlike so many of the fools on those shows.

I'm flying home to spend a week with my parents on Thursday, and I cannot wait. There's just something about being "home," even if it's not really home.

Horseback riding? I'm so jealous--i've never been! I bet it's nice to...for lack of better words...be back on the saddle again. :)

I used to ride for years, and had to stop becuase it was to expensive. I miss it so much though, and I wish I had the money to start riding regularly again.

my great aunt has a horse farm in Leesburg, I think she might give lessons. I'll ask my grandmother the details and see if can get a number for you :) I know leesburg is a bit out there but might be worth it :)

I love going home to my parent's house. It's kind of nice to be taken care of again :)

I love that you brought four dresses home. This is always my strategy -- I pack way more outfits than I need for anywhere. What if I change my mind? Or the weather turns?

SO happy to hear you're having a marvelous time.

Having grown up in what is apparently known as the "wild west" in these parts, I grew up riding Western--I went to sleep-away horse camp every year, but it always involved trail rides and saddle horns.

Funny story. My boyfriend's parents own a horse farm in New York, and the first time I was up there his mom asked me if I rode. I answered an enthusiastic "of course!," remembering my happy days at camp. Except. Turns out, my pigtails-and-bandana mindset are a wee bit out of place when riding ENGLISH STYLE. Yeah. It was a little embarrassing. For some reason they still love me, his parents; it must be fate, right? : )

The last time I rode a horse it scared the crap out of me (I'm afraid of heights), but I'd be willing to try it out again.

As for what I've been doing... counting down the hours until I'll be at the beach!

That sounds super fun, I LOVE riding too, so fun, my BFF in Chile was a pro rider when we were little, what is it called, an equestrionist? hehe
